Which do you think is the best kit to paint your calipers with:

-Duplicolor: Brush on/500 degrees F/$20+
-VHT: Spray on/900 degrees F/$14+
-G2: Brush on/950 degrees F/$38+ (2 part system w/activator)

I would say use the spray. It has a better clear coat look than the brush on...trust me I've painted mine 4 times...red, red spray, red and black and then finally black...lol

Theres no need to pay that kind of price when you can use engine paint thats cheaper. It looks just as good, plenty of color options also.

G2, then spray on, then Duplicolor

The Duplicolor kit is the worst of the bunch that I have used. G2 formed a nice hard finish that resisted brake fluid. The Duplicolor came right off at the slightest spill, and scratched really easily. I've seen rattle can paint jobs hold up better.

(And these were prepped properly. Dremeled smooth, degreased, and cleaned, on the bench)
